Overview

This city of 222,815 inhabitants was founded on May 22, 1772 (other sources say 1771). The white and blue represent the waters of the Río Bayamón [Ri'o Bayamo'n] and remind us that the first hydraulic mill in Puerto Rico was built along this river. The cross refers to the one on the CoA, the Calvary Cross [Cruz de Calvario], itself representing the Holy Cross to be found in the municipality's first church. On March 29, 1977, the Municipal Assembly of Bayamón officially approved the flag and corrected the errors which existed in the the city code following the Resolution No. 59 dated April 8, 1971. The current flag of Bayamón, the official white field of Bayamón, was embroidered by Mrs. Gloria M. León.

David Ott, a fellow Scandinavian flag lover, pointed me to a site in Puerto Rico, where we found the flag of Bayamon...a Scandinavian cross design.

The correct Bayamon's flag is the variant presented by Edward Mooney, Jr.  The color is very dark blue.

Bayamón - On 29 March 1977 the Municipal Assembly officially approved the flag and they amended the errors that existed in the Coat of Arms. The present flag consists of a blue plain Latin cross edged with yellow. The official flag was sown by Gloria M. León.  The flag derives its design, colors and symbolism from the municipal Coat of Arms.

Are you sure the Reported WRONG Flag is actually wrong? All my life as a Bayamon resident that flag was the official flag.

The problem resides in the shade of blue. The official flag is of a dark-blue, not a real blue shade.
